EURAXESS is an unique pan-European initiative backed by the European Union and its Members States, offering a complete range of information and personalised support services, to researchers, innovators, research organisations/universities and businesses.
At the end of 2016 the new portal was launched and it is now a platform for researchers, entrepreneurs, universities and businesses to interact with each other on a global scale. The revamped EURAXESS portal proposes registered users with matching collaboration, job and hosting opportunities and introduces a real funding database, where research funding agencies are invited to enter national research funding opportunities.
